Jeph Loeb Happy Hour: The Red Hulk Revealed!

Filed under: Blurbs — Chris Eckert @ 2:09 am

This is what happens when you decide to start drinking wine while writing Downcounting: crushed by the meaninglessness of it all, your mind wanders and you think, “whatever happened to that Marvel Indie Anthology? Wasn’t James Kochalka doing a Hulk story for it? James Kochalka on the Hulk, that’s a fun comic!” So you Google for it, and find no further information on the anthology (I thought you guys said it was coming out in “late 2007/early 2008!”) but you do find these pages:


Jeph Loeb, you’ve been nicked son! That’s clearly the rage-ohol fueled Red Hulk, and while his eye design has changed, that’s the blue Rick Jones “A-Bomb” Hulkomination too. It’s only a matter of time before White Power Hulk crops up. Probably in issue three, given Loeb’s love of the immediate payoff.

In Loeb’s defense, he’s already gone down the rainbow-colored strong guy road with his “Bloodlines” creation Loose Cannon, so perhaps Kochalka was tapping the same zeitgeist for the Hulk Squad.

Either way Marvel, where is my indie anthology?


  1. I think that Aubrey Sitterson was in charge of the indie anthology. I could shoot him an email and check the status on it if you’d like. Also, don’t be surprised if the Hulk fights the rain in the next issue of Hulk.

  2. Damn Rosenlund, I knew you had peeked at those scripts. You’ll never work in this business again!
